In a recent report from Football.London, it was mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur will continue to monitor the situation with Everton winger Anthony Gordon ahead of the January transfer window. The Lilywhites had explored a potential double swoop for Richarlison and Anthony Gordon last summer but were only able to bring the Brazilian to North London, so the Spurs will try and convince the Toffees into selling Gordon this January.
Gordon’s Campaign For Everton This Season
Gordon had a decent campaign last season as he saved the Toffees from relegation in the final weeks, producing several influential displays in the final third. However, the youngster is off to a slow start this season as he has only managed to score three goals over 14 appearances so far.
The Liverpool-born sensation has only averaged 1.6 shots, 0.6 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per game in the Premier League and has barely managed to distribute the ball proficiently after completing 77.2% of his attempted passes in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Should Conte Bring Him To Tottenham?
Anthony Gordon excels at getting past defenders and doesn’t mind taking a shot at the goal from a distance. He can make some dangerous runs down the left flank creating a few meaningful chances in the final third. The youngster can also set up his teammates in front of the goal by making a few decisive passes down the middle.
The 21-year-old has the potential to play at a high level despite a drop in his form in the past few weeks. He has earned a regular starting place in the left-wing position for the Merseyside club and is quite happy with the amount of football coming his way.
If Antonio Conte decides to bring him Tottenham, then he could very well compete across various fronts but his minutes on the pitch would be drastically reduced due to heavy competition in the club for a starting position. So the young forward would probably stick to his current club and help them rise up the table as he enjoys plenty of football with his present side.
